Pat Myself On The Back
Today is call for celebration once more. I noticed I have broken the 100 mark of followers (though who knows how many of those early followers are still checking in). I cannot believe I have actually amassed a following this large, but of course I'm pleased. Okay, pleased is way too boring a word. Ecstatic is more like it. I have been cramming my brain over the last couple days trying to come up with a fun contest to celebrate, and of course my muse is grumping in the corner and refuses to cooperate. Something about "contests have nothing to do with writing, dammit". That little gremlin won't help at all, so this may be a quiet celebration.
In any event, I shall take a moment to say "Woohoo" Homer Simpson style. Okay, celebration over.
For those of you who have stuck with me and keep coming back, I truly appreciate your support and participation. I've been a bit lax lately (yes, I know) in my content, so I'll try to ramp that up a bit. When I first started this blog, I was here every day adding new things. I'll do my best to get back to that level of activity.
It's interesting that when I first started this, the blog was for me. It was so I could have somewhere to get things down on paper (virtual, anyway). It has since evolved however, into an interactive exercise where I get to muse along with all of you. There are so many talented and intelligent people who stop by to comment, and I've even had some neat experiences interviewing authors. I got to interview Jamie Ford! Does it get better than that? Well yes, if I were able to wrangle an interview with Stephen King maybe (no offense Jamie). But all in all, this has been so much fun.
I have tried to acknowledge everyone else's successes (those that I follow), but if you have something to celebrate, drop me a comment here. I'll put up a post (or edit this one) so everyone can celebrate along with you. Tell me all about your own successes so we can party it up!
